(2) Novgorod Outskirts

Here is a little gem left over from Trics 1v1 2016 Map contest that I never entered. A small snowy area ready for some aggressive action. Give it a try and let me know what you think.

I like it! The points on the main road make for good cutoffs. I also like the aesthetic asymmetry.
I think some stronger/more cover could make infantry combat a bit more engaging, though that might mess with the aggressive aim of the map.

NOVGORAD OUTSKIRTS UPDATE for KOTH
File Version: 5.0

1. Church Added for AE.
2. Middle Crossing Side roads changed to RED cover and speed bonus.
3. Pathing adjusted in ditch areas.
4. A few large hedges changed from HEAVY crush to MEDIUM crush.





Funny note: The OST AI loves this map. They take middle VP first then make a bunker pointed at my cutoff. Those sneaky little bastards.

Hey- I played a couple games on the map yesterday after you asked for feedback. Love the atmosphere.

The red cover road splitting the map in half might be too tough to cross. Maybe there could be a small section of damaged road on each side that's only neutral cover? Somewhere near the forks in the road.
That way, there are safe places to cross, but your opponent knows exactly where those are and can set up ambushes/mines accordingly.
Of course, that might not be necessary because the front line is so wide.

I hope my amateur feedback is of some use!

Thanks for the feedback Ghost!

Red cover is a problem child:
- Too much angers players.
- Red cover towards your base = wiped squads on retreat.
- If you have too many areas that are not red cover on your roads, vehicles will speed up and slow down randomly.
- Visually it makes no sense that you take more damage on the road but not standing right next to the road out of cover. It would have been better implemented if you could paint cover yourself.

We added cover on the center VP and the entrance from North into the church area. Maybe a couple spots by the cutoffs might be good as well^^
